A disused quarry, north-facing and tucked under the motorway - in a selective guide - you have to be kidding! In reality the crag is worth including for several reasons: it is a great hot weather venue, it makes a decent airport day crag as the parking is nearby, and Nice is only 20 minute's drive away; and of course because the climbing is generally excellent! You won't see many locals climbing here in the winter; it doesn't get any sun, and retains the damp because of its aspect. Despite this, it is possible to get some good days here out of season, bring an extra jumper though! Of course, the reverse of this makes it a great summer crag, shady climbing with steaming sunbathing by the picnic tables.
